Description

The installer will be ready around 6 months after the release of Jessie. It makes a lot of sense to have it backported quite soon.

This is not officially blocking #8538, but maybe it should is possible.

Hi sajolida,

that was not planned, but I can manage to do that in 2015.

Currently waiting to have the installer in Sid.

  • Target version changed from Tails_1.8 to Tails_2.0

I believe that 2.2 would be more realistic a target, but this is being discussed elsewhere.

#14 Updated by intrigeri almost 3 years ago

@u: now that the package has been uploaded to sid, I assume you'll take care of preparing and testing the backport on Jessie (can be done as soon as you want+can), of tracking when the package migrates to testing (you should get an email notification I guess), and asking for sponsorship for the backport upload.

@sajolida and anyone else who is interested in the timing: essentially everything now depends on backports NEW queue processing (we have one a couple more actions on the critical path that are on our plate, but I trust we'll take them very fast); if we're lucky, we might have the package in jessie-backport by the end of January.

Yes, I'll handle this asap :)

I've prepared the backport. Will test some more.

I've tagged and tested the installer in Jessie now.

It would be nice if you could upload it.

I think you didn't push all the relevant branches and stuff to our Git repo (:liveusb-creator.git) yet: I don't see the debian/jessie-backports branch that I expect to review, for example. And https://git-tails.immerda.ch/liveusb-creator/refs/ has no tag with "bpo" in its name. Perhaps you didn't fully transition to using our official repo yet?

sorted out. ready for review.
I can also upload the package to mentors.debian.net if you want to.

Thanks for the offer! I would not use it, though: part of my pre-sponsorship review is integrated into my process to build and check packages.

Uploaded! I'll let you track it while it goes through https://ftp-master.debian.org/backports-new.html, and come back to this ticket once it has been accepted.

I have:

  • deleted the debian/backports branch, and pushed your work into the debian/jessie-backports: it possible that we maintain backports for multiple versions of Debian some day; please check our doc to see if there's something wrong or unclear there, that lead you to call this branch this way originally
  • adjusted gbp.conf on that branch so we can easily build from it with gbp

Thanks for the modifications.
